Veteran classics rider Zdenek Štybar looks set for a move to Team BikeExchange-Jayco in 2023.
The 36-year-old was deemed surplus to requirements by Patrick Lefevere at Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl but the rider vowed to keep racing and look for a spot on another team.
Team BikeExchange-Jayco would not comment when approached by VeloNews on Saturday but several sources have stated that the deal is on.

Štybar would bring a huge amount of value and experience to the Australian team. A former winner of Strade Bianche, E3 BinckBank Classic, and Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, he has worked alongside some of the biggest one-day racers from the last two decades.
BikeExchange has been busy in the transfer market this summer. Eddie Dunbar (Ineos Grenadiers), Felix Engelhardt (Tyrol), Filippo Zana (Bardiani-CSF-Faizanè), Chris Harper (Jumbo-Visma), Elmar Reinders (Riwal), Rudy Porter, Blake Quick, and Felix Engelhardt have all joined for 2023.
Both Michael Matthews and Simon Yates signed contract extensions.
